Today the Fantini group includes Cantina Diomede, Gran Sasso, Vesevo, Vigneti del Salento, Vigneti del Vulture, Tufarello, Zabù and Cantina Atzei, among others. Alberto Antonini oversees production, ensuring that these wines offer great quality, varietal character and value. Their elegant and striking packaging makes them stand out on the shelf or table.
The grapes for this wine come from the small farms controlled by the Farnese group in the areas around Ortona, San Salvo and Pollutri. The vine age here is between 25 and 50 years.The vineyards have a south-eastern exposure and the soils are a mixture of clay and limestone.
